Paulien Zwart, Tom Coronel’s wife and former ETCC racer, will take part in the Dubai 24 Hours on January 10th, 2013, together with four other Dutch female drivers with the aim to raise funds for charity.
Paulien will share a BMW 320D run by the Racing Divas Team Schubert with Sheila Verschuur, Gaby Uljee, Liesette Braams and Sandra van der Sloot.
They will donate part of the budget to ALS Nederland, a foundation that funds medical researches on the Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells and spinal cord and eventually leads to general paralysis.
It is also possible to support them by buying one of the hearts that are sported on the livery of their racing car at www.racingdivas.nl.
The five ladies have already competed in last year’s 24 Hours, and finished in fourth position. Now they are aiming for a podium result.
